Add some fun by clipping it on!

Standard

A quick and easy way to add a bit of fun to your packaging is to clip your tags (hand stamped using a stamp from Firefly Stamps – of course!) and business cards on to your packaging.  Clips are a perfect addition for posting out your handmade creations, displaying packaged goods at market stalls, or general gift wrapping – especially with Christmas just round the corner!

Hard to see, but a metalic spiral shaped paperclip

There are lots of options available if you search in your local craft shops, two dollar stores, office supplies stores and online.  Don’t forget to make sure they fit with your business colour scheme, style of your products, or packaging.

Some cheap and cheerful options include:

  • Cute mini wooden pegs
  • Add a dash of colour with mini coloured plastic pegs
  • Coloured paper clips – these are super cheap and easy to access
  • Create heart shaped paperclips yourself (I remember making this at school many years ago!) See this link forinstructions: http://howaboutorange.blogspot.com.au/2009/02/heart-shaped-paper-clips.html
    • Buy shaped paper clips – there are lots of cute options out there.  These are just a few of the good ones I found on ebay:

Don’t forget, coming next week our free stamp pad with personalised or custom stamp orders offer.  This offer is limited so you will need to be quick!  Visit the Crafty Firefly Facebook page (you will find a link to it on the right hand menu of the blog) to order your stamp and receive your free stamp pad.  Instructions for how to do this will be posted in the middle of next week.

I’m heading away for a few days late this week and early next week.  I will be unable to make stamps during this time but I’m more than happy to answer questions and create designs if you would like to send me an email: fireflystamps@gmail.com    I will be back in full swing for stamp making on Thursday 18th October, and hopefully with some exciting new stamp designs shortly after that too!

Before I leave I am endeavouring to get our facebook gallery up to date so you will be able to view our full range of stamps there.  Firefly Stamp’s craftumi and madeit stores will be in holiday mode while I’m away.

Cheers,

The Crafty Firefly
